Please do your research before asking a question and try not to ask questions which Tom has answered before – either here or in interviews such as the Doctor Who Magazine articles available on this website in the Doctor Who section. If your question is factual, please try googling it first to see if you can find the answer.
Questions about whether Tom will appear at a convention or in a particular programme or film are wasted questions as he cannot talk about any offers in advance, and the moment agreement is reached, he announces the news on his website.

Your handling of things...literally

Postby mystery item on September 7th, 2011, 5:57 am

So, having seen you in quite a few roles over the years, I couldn't help but to notice that you can often be seen adeptly handling various objects with both your left and right hands. You also seem to initiate movements with the left side of your body in a way that would be unusual for a right-handed individual. Is this merely down to issues of convenience and proximity in handling props and blocking scenes, or are you actually rather dextrous with both hands (even though you may favor one over the other for most activities and tend to do some things, such as writing, almost exclusively with one hand?)

As a "wrong"-handed person I am truly fascinated by such questions.

No, Mystery Item

I am completely right handed. I never let my left hand know what my right hand does and to make sure of this I usually keep my left hand in the darkness of my left pocket. Also I often clench my left hand even when the rest of my hands are quite relaxed. Are you with me?
